    Hello everyone,

    A big thank you to everyone who contributed to this thread. After reading through the posts I was finally able to get CFS2 back in 32bit mode. After some tweaks to my config file I'm back up and flying again and the graphics are pretty good.

    Thanks again everyone.

    The way i installed it was by dumping disc 1 and two into a folder and clicked the install application. No having to stop grab another disc or anything. Probably wouldn't work anyway but you don't need to run disc's its whats inside them what u need. yank it out of both discs and put it all together and your ready to install. you will need to either patch the executable or download a no cd cracked one already been under the hex editor for you. I been modding Sid Meir's Pirates over at Hooked on Pirates the Cutlass isle website for the last few years but I cut my teeth modding CFS 2. Probably would never left CFS2 but I got the bright idea to get married so u know how that goes. My handle here is Deathwind Le Vent de la mort but I'm Pirate at Cutlass Isle.

    I'd love to install it - using Windows 10 - but it all seems overwhelming.
    I don't even have the CD's so how do I go about getting it?

  13. #338
    Google it?

    Used copies always available...

    Ebay? (several less than £12)
    Cex? (couple less than £5)

    Plus several other sellers...

    Found a copy. Doesn't work so well.
    Also no scenery is loaded. Missing scenery folder. Missing objects. Cant load missions. What a mess it is.

    ….. been reading this post since inception. My box went “ta, ta” awhile back and no matter what I do it I couldn’t get it to be like Lazarus. So before I buy a Win10 box I ask this . Does this work around really work for CFS2 in Win10 .? If so maybe I can be like the great golfer Torino and get “back in the game again baby !”

    Mcfs2 lan multi-player

    Back in the early 2000s I had 4 windows 98 ..xp computers all linked together with cat 5 cables to play multi player mcfs2 without the internet.. I am currently itching to find 2 old pc with all those same spec to setup a 2 player lan.. win ep.. a cat5 network card.. hi end for the time period video card.. and a sound card with the db15 pin game port connection for the old Microsoft sidewinder force feedback joysticks I still have.. is this even possible to find these days.?? I'm completely computer illiterate these days.. now that cell phones do pretty much all I need.... where woukd I even begin to look.?? I definitely miss dog fighting the kids.. who are all grown with kids of their own now.. but now I have grandchildren to dogfight..! Lol

    Finding anything older than Win7 is not easy. If you could find 2 Win7s that have dedicated video card that may be the way to go. I can make my 14 year old Win7 PC LAN to 5 or 6 year old Win10 PC just fine as well over WiFi since the are talking to the same WiFi router so you can get a good range Window OS PCs to work as well.

    IIRC DB15 died around 2005. PS2 ports are all but gone now too. If you want a Force Feedback stick I know there are USB plugged Microsoft Sidewinder Force Feedback 2 sticks on eBay but they are not cheap (50 to 150 USD). My self I use the old basic Non-Force Feedback MS Sidewinder Precision 2.

    I bought a 32 inch monitor from peaq, the PMO S323 IQSC,

    I wanted to manually edit the cfs2 cfg to adjust the resolution for the 2560x1440 window mode.

    But somehow it doesn't work, the window goes black, can anyone help me?

    Device=Radeon RX 5500 XT

    Wolfi had similar issue with large monitor, he solved it by running 1920x1080 resolution

    See this post (on previous page) for solution...
